Kimpton now operates in more than 70 hotels and 85 restaurants, bars and lounges across urban locations, resort destinations around the world.
The 471-room design-led Kimpton Kuala Lumpur, with its youthful and playful brand personality will reinvent a sophisticated and highly personalized lifestyle experience expected by today’s modern travelers that is aligned with TRX’s profile as the capital city’s new CBD.
As Malaysia’s first international financial district and Kuala Lumpur’s future Central Business District (CBD), TRX will strengthen Kuala Lumpur’s position as a leading centre for international finance and business. The financial district’s masterplan combines sustainability, attractive public realms and great connectivity to create a world-class international urban ecosystem at the heart of Kuala Lumpur.
The property will feature three food and beverage outlets including a rooftop bar & restaurant and a deli-grocer café. Guests can enjoy the views from the outdoor rooftop swimming pool or break a sweat in the gym. There will be a range of unique meeting and event spaces to cater to a wide range of activities, from small intimate gatherings to larger energetic social events.
“We’re excited to be partnering with LQ Retail Sdn Bhd to bring our heartfelt approach to hospitality with Kimpton Hotels and Restaurants to Kuala Lumpur as we continue to expand across the region into new markets. We believe the ‘dream’ element of experiential travel will become even more important once people can travel again and this hotel will deliver a great boutique experience to those guests.”, said Rajit Sukumaran, Managing Director of South East Asia & Korea for InterContinental Hotels Group.
